BBQ Chicken Pizza

I don't like to veer TOO far off the beaten path with pizza.

But occasionally, I see something I just have to try - or give another try!  I've had BBQ Chicken Pizza before, and not been wowed, but I gave it another shot, and it was pretty tasty, actually.  This works great as an appetizer, dinner tonight, or as a freezer meal. I'm guessing on amounts here - I kind of just sprinkled ans tweaked as I went.  This made 1 pizza that was about 9" x 12".

BBQ Chicken Pizza

1-2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked & diced
1 cup-ish fontina cheese, shredded
1/2 cup provolone cheese, shredded
1/2 cup to 1 cup your favorite BBQ sauce (I don't like it too sweet)
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
red pepper flakes, if you like
1 par-baked pizza crust (make your own, or purchase)

I lightly brushed some BBQ sauce on the crust, but you can skip that if you like, and drizzle some over top instead, or whatever floats your boat.  I tossed the chicken pieces in some sauce, too.  Start by layering 1/2 of your cheese on the crust, and then sprinkle on the chicken and onion slices.  Add the rest of your cheese, and bake in a preheated 425 degree oven until cheese is golden, about 10-15 minutes.  Let cool for a few minutes, then top with the fresh cilantro, slice and serve.  

To make this as a freezer meal, make up the pizza, then wrap in plastic wrap or foil, and freeze.  Bake frozen, but add a little baking time.
